Appearance - Pours a cloudy, dirty orange color with a white, finger width head. Sub-par retention. no lace.
Smell - Predominant chai notes, clove spice and subtle menthol, fruity esters and backed by a light wheat aroma.
Taste - Follows the nose and as expected. Chai tea flavors dominate the flavor profile. Sweetness with a bit of clove spice, fair earthiness, stone fruit and ends with a subtle menthol quality. Any wheat is buried fairly deep.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with a sharp, lively carbonation.
Overall - I believe they achieved what they intended to do, but the end result is something I don't care much for. It's interesting and unique, in the least, but nothing I'd really want to drink again.

A: A somewhat hazy medium amber with a deep orange hue. The white head is quick to dissipate and made of rocky bubbles.
S: Well balanced, moderate aroma of chia tea spices and an American Wheat Ale. The chia tea has cardamon, cinnamon and clove aromas while the underlying beer has citrus hops and a soft wheat aroma. There are light ginger and clove notes as well.
T: Moderate wheat sweetness with a moderate to moderately-strong chia tea flavor with the ginger be the more predominate flavor. There are other spice flavor of cardamon and a light clove as wel. Low hop bitterness. The balance is about even the finish is medium and the aftertaste is of tea spices.
M: Medium-light bodied with moderately strong carbonation. Just a slight prickle on the tip of the tongue.
O: A a great example of a balance spiced beer where you can taste and smell both the spices and the base beer style; to often the spice just takes over but not here. It not a beer I'd go tracking down or highly recommend but it's good for it's style and the brewers intent.
